Among the lawmakers to sign the letter was Rep. Colin Allred, a Dallas Democrat whose district was hit hard by the storms.
El congresista Colin Allred, representante del distrito 32 (Dallas) en la Cámara Baja federal, comentó que las autoridades de Texas debían poner su máximo esfuerzo en medidas de precaución al reabrir la economía.
U.S. Rep. Colin Allred on Monday urged caution in reopening the Texas economy and risking the gains made in the fight against the deadly coronavirus.
Despite what you might hear coming out of Washington, D.C., affordable access to quality health care is not a partisan issue for regular Americans. That basic fact is even more pronounced as people struggle to survive the coronavirus pandemic.
U.S. Rep. Colin Allred, D-Dallas, also released a statement.
“This bill is a good step, and we have much more work to do, including providing assistance to all our cities. Our economic future is directly tied to our public health response," he said. "I hope that our focus moving forward can be on developing a plan to dramatically ramp up testing, contact tracing and treatment."
“We must have transparency and accurate reporting at all our long-term care facilities so we can protect our loved ones during this crisis,” said Congressman Colin Allred (TX-32).
Days after Gov. Greg Abbott announced he was lifting some restrictions placed on Texans because of the coronavirus pandemic, U.S. Rep. Colin Allred said he doesn’t want officials to move too quickly.
“Obviously, we don’t have a strong supply chain,” says U.S. Rep. Colin Allred, a Democrat from Dallas. “Ninety percent of the production of our PPE equipment is from abroad.”
"And I have been hearing about that from folks all across my district. And I'm extremely concerned by it," said Rep.
Congressman Colin Allred, D-TX, is also working to convince his state to expand the program. Allred argues not doing so disproportionately affects African American and Latino communities, just like the virus.
